"Yeah, I think I'm just going to just swap the whole pickup. It's not costing much. Cheers."

"The Strat style pickups  have mostly plastic covers that will be easily switched, but the Tele style metal covers are soldered and usually potted. Changing those covers can be difficult without damaging the coil. Not a job for people without…"

"My soldering skills aren't great, but I am lazy.  :DI haven't seen the pickups in question but often metal covers are soldered to a base plate and grounded so you'd have to solder to remove them ."

"Hi, I'm talking cheap Chinese pickups, I have heaps of them for cheaper boxes, none are potted. The Fender sets I have are waxed, but not potted into their plastic covers. Maybe it's just certain models.  Taff"

"Fender cleans up the excess wax, but most cheaper pickups don’t, so they get stuck on at some point. Sometimes you never know what you’re gonna get till you start taking things apart?"

"I have found that not all single coils are wax potted, the statocaster style ones I swap just fall out of their covers. Taff"

Do you plan to do a build? It's 75 percent fun and creativity and 25 percent frustration like when you realize your input jack wont work where you put it....and you have to relocate it
